My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...
There is a right way to practice medicine - and to do it right takes time. I affiliated with MDVIP so I could continue practicing good medicine, taking the time to share information with patients so they can make the right decisions about their health, with my help.
My four decades of medical practice in environments as diverse as San Francisco General Hospital Emergency, the Haight-Ashbury Free Clinic , rock concerts produced by Bill Graham and 25 years of primary care in Marin County have taught me that the most important element in helping a person achieve good health is an ongoing, mutually respectful doctor-patient relationship.
The MDVIP personalized, preventive practice model is the best way I've found to allow all the right information to flow both ways: from patient to physician, and physician to patient.
